Hi there. Here in the UK I am used to having badgers, foxes, hedgehogs and pheasants in my garden. We are thinking about moving to the Tormos or surrounding areas. What wildlife is there that we can see and also, will this wildlife hurt cats? I have a cat 🙂. Thank you all

Hi 

We live on the outskirts of Pego, so quite near Tormos. There is wildlife around, but unlike in the UK where the animals visit, here you have to look for it! Apart from palm rats (totally inoffensive), the odd snake (ditto), lizards and gekkos and anything any one of my 5 cats drags in for a present for me, there is virtually no wildlife on our urbanization. But travelling about (particularly at dusk) you can see wild boars (saw 3 absolutely stunning piglets playing on the road yesterday), pine martins, weasels, bats (bigger than the pipistrelles we had in our garden in the UK), various owls, rabbits (Spanish rabbits have huge ears and are bigger than English - they look more like hares), 2 types of foxes (grey and red) and badgers (rare, but we have seen them. I know where there is a set close to us, but I´m not telling where) and particularly if you can be bothered to go down to the marjal a stunning selection of wild birds. Oh, and one of our neighbours once had an exceptionally large vulture land on his roof. He contacted the vulture rescue organisation who said it would be en route down south and not to worry. They were right - it went on its way next day.

We came over (15 years ago) with 2 cats, both of which we have since lost from old age. Over the years I have acquired 4 more, all of which were elderly rescues, and we now have 5 - 3 adults and 2 kittens. We are also on our second dog. None of them have ever had any problem with wildlife, do don´t worry.
